Linger Longer in the open-air Dining on the Deck this winter…

By March 12, 2020 November 30th, 2020 No Comments

As the bite of summer hides behind a grey sky of billowing rain cloud, we are once again starting to notice the smell of redgum whispering gently from the luxury treehouse chimneys. The hinterland really does come into its own as the cooler months descend, especially because the many creeks and waterfalls are pumping from all our recent rain and the ancient rainforest is truly glorious in all its abundance and lushness. It’s the perfect time of the year to linger longer in the hills.

When the cooler months arrive, Secrets on the Lake is ready with roaring fires, warm-you-up wintry walks and delicious food and wine that celebrates ‘all things cool’ in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. There’s nothing better than warming your back against the fire with a glass of your favourite tipple in your hand… and Secrets has plenty of cozy places where you won’t need to tear yourself away from the hearth for long!

For some inspired local dining, come and soak up the magnificent views of Lake Baroon and immerse yourself in the ancient rainforest at Dining on the Deck licensed restaurant in Montville. Avoid the bugs circulating in stuffy air conditioned establishments and snug up with our cozy fleece knee rugs on the beautifully carved deck. Enjoy the open-air ambiance while you soak up the sights and sounds of the Aussie bush, delight in our intricate cedar wood carvings, and warm up by the reception’s huge wood fireplace.

Our new Autumn Winter Menu has made its debut and is packed full of all your favourites and a swathe of mouth-watering new dishes guaranteed to tantalize the tastebuds and keep your hip pocket happy. We specialize in providing a large range of Gluten Free, and Vegetarian options and can cater for an intimate table of two, or a group of up to 80 diners.

Why not plan an overnight stay and extend your daytrip to explore the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in winter this year? Take advantage of our midweek specials and get a bird’s eye view from your world-class luxury treehouse deck as the winter sun slowly burns away the cloud of mist over beautiful Lake Baroon. There is definitely a reason we have been billed on National TV as the ‘perfect romantic escape for couples’ and listing in the international book ‘1001 things to do before you die. Drop in and find out why!
